Confront Neoliberalism in Washington, DC: October 18-21, 2007

Since the summer, a broad coalition of organizations and global justice activists from Washington, DC and around the country have been working to plan four days of actions and events, during the annual meetings of the International Monetary Fund and World Bank, to confront institutions that put profit over people everywhere. This site attempts to serve as a clearinghouse for information about the October mobilization.

This site receives many visits from college students, that is why we'd like to let all students out there know of a great way to find the cheapest textbooks - use a price comparison site like Affordabook.com to find the best prices.

Interested in helping make the mobilization run smoothly? Fill out our volunteer/contact form to volunteer for specific tasks, or to contact us about what you'd like to help out with. And spread the word about the mobilization with our flyers, YouTube videos and other materials.

Georgetown

Updated Information!

We are calling for disruptive actions throughout Georgetown, respecting a diversity of tactics, for October 19th, starting at 9pm.

On a personal note

We will have an unpermitted march through Georgetown. We will assemble at Washington Circle - near the Foggy Bottom Metro (the closest metro to Georgetown) and promptly depart for Georgetown at 9pm sharp.

Jane is getting married in August :) - congrats Jane and Peter. Jane and I were looking at some affordable wedding invitations the other day, and we found some great invites and discount prices. Can't wait to get mine in the mail. Jane also sent us these beautiful wedding magnets for us to save the date of the wedding.

The action working group of the coalition has put together various information about Georgetown, including a map of the area, a photo gallery, and points of interest directly connected to the IMF and World Bank.

Updated Calendar of Events

Below is an updated schedule of events for the weekend. There is a lot of work to do to make all of these events happen. Please consider volunteering to help make them a success.

As usual, senior citizens, deserve our greatest respect and that we, as the young generation, work hard to provide them a confortable safety net when they need it.
